For the development of smart grid, the effective detection of voltage events is a very important task for the power system monitoring. Voltage sags, interruptions, and voltage swells which usually produce large losses in commercial and industrial consumers are the main events in power systems due to the sensitivity of equipments to these voltage variations. In this paper, a hybrid detection method for voltage events by combining the wavelet analysis and adaptive linear combiner (ADALINE) is proposed. The usefulness of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated by a simple laboratory setup with LabVIEW program and actual recorded waveforms. With the help of accurate time locating of the wavelet analysis and correct event classification of ADALINE, power system monitoring could provide accurate and useful information to power grids via the developing advanced metering infrastructure.
